Murder, Mayhem and Mistletoe

A collection of stories by


The Headless Magi
Terence Faherty's metaphysical sleuth, Owen Keane, is working at a crisis phone line in New Jersey, where several alarming calls from a young boy coincide with vandalism at a local Nativity scene, bringing a thought-provoking mystery home for the holidays.

Christmas Cache
Aileen Schumacher's New Mexico engineer and amateur sleuth, Tory Travers, agrees to let her teenage son house-sit at the local university's experimental solar-heated home - and ends up with a challenging Christmas puzzle: a mysterious shooting, a backyard full of buried cash, and original paintings even she can recognize.

Stocking Stuffer
Doing undercover security work during the holiday shopping rush, Wendi Lee's Boston P.I., Angela Matelli, struggles to clear a woman accused of killing her ex-husband in a mystery filled with enough bizarre twists for an unexpected unwrapping of a Christmas killer.

The Empty Manger
Bill Crider's Texas sheriff, Dan Rhodes, has his hands full with a "living" manger scene downtown when the body of the local councilwoman is found nearby. Rhodes has a suspect list as long as a string of Christmas lights - but it's old-fashioned horse sense that leads to a surprise killer.
